MS and Samsung release the SGH-i700 Pocket PC
Microsoft Corp. and Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., the world's third-largest manufacturer of wireless handsets, officially unveiled the Samsung Windows® Powered MITs (Mobile Intelligent Terminal by Samsung) SGH-i700, a Windows Powered Pocket PC. This GSM/GPRS-enabled "smart" device is a result of Microsoft and Samsung's commitment to collaborate and develop a portfolio of Windows Powered smart, wireless devices that address diverse customer requirements and design preferences.

"Samsung is excited to unveil the MITs SGH-i700, a pre-eminent addition to its wireless device offerings. This wireless device unites Samsung's innovative handset technology and Microsoft's powerful software to bring a stylish and multifunctional next-generation smart device option," said H.W. Kim, vice president of the Mobile Communication Division at Samsung Electronics. "We look forward to strengthening our product portfolio as a result of our continued collaboration with Microsoft to bring Windows Powered devices that enable companies and individuals to reach their full potential at work or at play."

"The MITs SGH-i700 will help people stay in touch with each other, their information, and a new wave of wireless applications and services that these smart devices make possible," said Juha Christensen, corporate vice president of the Mobile Devices Marketing Group at Microsoft. "Samsung's stunning design work, combined with our powerful and customizable Smartphone and Pocket PC software, produces an unmatched assortment of smart, wireless devices for mobile operators to evaluate and for customers, ultimately, to enjoy."

These products, available soon on GSM/GPRS wireless networks, will provide mobile operators with a new and compelling Pocket PC to offer their subscribers.

The Samsung MITs SGH-i700 Pocket PC will allow customers to wirelessly access their Microsoft® Outlook® messaging and collaboration client data, play media files, browse the Web while on the go, as well as make phone calls and send instant and Short Message Service (SMS) messages. The MITs SGH-i700 Pocket PC is a wireless PDA with an integrated digital camera, SD card slot, larger touch-screen display for easy viewing of data, and a stylus for data input and navigation.

The Samsung MITs SGH-i700 Pocket PC for GSM/GPRS networks adds to Samsung's Windows Powered mobile device lineup that includes the recently announced Samsung MITs i700 Pocket PC for CDMA networks.
